Glow-in-the-Dark Drinks

Okay, this is seriously so cool!  
The kids got the biggest kick out of these drinks 
( they got to drink soda AND it glowed!!) and it was so simple.  

Super fun and easy glow in the dark drinks (totally safe)


To celebrate the first night of Summer Vacation, the kids got to go out in the backyard in their pj's to catch lightning bugs.  While they were filling their jar with fireflies, I remembered THIS cool idea for glow cones I'd seen on Pinterest.  I ran inside to see if I had everything I needed.  Luckily, I found a package of glow sticks leftover from Halloween.  I didn't have any shaved ice, so I just used Sprite, but it was still super cool.

This is all you need:  some glowsticks, clear plastic tumbler cups,  larger opaque cups ( I used the red keg cups) and your beverage.




Activate your glow sticks and bend them to fit in the bottom of your larger cup.  ( If your glowsticks have the connector piece to make them into a bracelet, it's helpful to make it into a circle so it stays in place and doesn't push up on the clear cup). Nestle the clear cup inside the larger cup and fill with your drink.  

That's it!  Serve to your amazed kids ( or fill with an adult beverage and serve to some amazed adults!)  




I definitely plan on doing this again throughout the summer.  How cool would it be to have when you're waiting for fireworks on the Fourth of July?

  11. That is really cool. I wish I lived farther south so I could actually do this. Here, in the summer, it doesn't get dark until after 10 pm, and sometimes well after 10 pm. It's kind of weird. (We're transplants so I'm still not used to it.) I can't let the kids stay up that late all the time, so my kids aren't experiencing any of the fun night time activities. :(

  50. would it still be safe if one of the sticks accidentally broke?

    ReplyDelete
  51. I would think so, Laurie. The glow sticks are sandwiched in between the two cups, so they're not touching the beverage at all. However, if one broke, I'd probably throw it out just to be safe.

    Not to rain on your parade, but glow sticks are semi-toxic and can cause bad stomach pains (and possible severe illness) if too much is consumed.
